TI12’s merchandise has been released as the Secret Shop for The International 2023 opens ahead of the event’s start next week.
The International 2023 is just around the corner, and even if you’re not in Seattle, you can get in the spirit with the new official merchandise from the TI12 Secret Shop. Released on October 8, on both the Dota 2 Official Shop and We Are Nations site, the TI12 merch has shirts, accessories, collectables, and more.
Split into the Event Collection and the Fan Art Collection, a format TI merchandise has used for several years now, there’s what seems like hundreds of items on offer. These can be purchased on the site, and shipped directly to you, or ordered for pickup at TI12’s venues in Seattle.
TI12 Event Collection Merchandise at Secret Shop
Much of the main line of event merch sticks switch the safe but reliable Black T-shirt and hoodie with a cool design motif, using the stained glass that has become a core part of TI12’s design in many pieces.
There’s also the exceptionally cool player jackets, which always look amazing, but this year have a really nice light blue gradient.
In terms of accessories, a huge map flag is probably one best and most practical piece of Dota 2 merchandise we’ve ever seen. We fully expect teams to buy a half dozen of these each, especially has teams were reaching out to valve for high resolution versions of the map in the run up to events this year. There’s also the usual array of wide-brimmed hats, beanies, tote bags, and more.
The Fan Art Collection at the Secret Shop
Always a treat, this year’s Fan Art collections feature seven incredibly cute designs based on six heroes. With art from FamouseF8, Edich and Botjira, there’s an adorable pastel Mirana set, a super serious crimson Legion Commander collection, another adorably moonlight-inspired Mirana collection, A pink Pudge one that’s adorable, a sinister Queen of Pain set, a set of advertisements of Tidehunter Ramen, and a super stylized Vengeful Spirit series.
Each mini collection allows you to choose from a mug, tote, stickers, short and long-sleeve t-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, and mousepads. We would love to get our hands on all of these, but our wallets won’t allow it.

Keen-eyed browsers will have also spotted some TI11 merch on the top bar of the Dota 2 shop. Yes, with between a 70 and 75 percent reduction, there’s some good deals on merch from Singapore’s TI.
Overall, it’s a good selection, and presumably very limited. Check it out on the official store page!
